Hana Zagorová, +75, RIP“Jsem naučená, že když se něco přihodí, hledám chybu v sobě. Nikdy nenadávám na člověka, který to zavinil, ale řeknu si: „Dobře ti tak, Zagorová! Bylas málo ve střehu a tady to máš“ Ale sebejistota je fajn vklad do života. Jen nesmí převážit nad kvalitou.” pic.twitter.com/9NXKF5GzRC
